Insurance For None

If you like your plan, you won't be able to keep your plan:
Private health insurance would only be allowed for extra benefits not covered by the plan, the bill’s text reveals:

SEC. 107. PROHIBITION AGAINST DUPLICATING COVERAGE.

(a) In General.—Beginning on the effective date described in section 106(a), it shall be unlawful for—

(1) a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act; or

(2) an employer to provide benefits for an employee, former employee, or the dependents of an employee or former employee that duplicate the benefits provided under this Act.

(b) Construction.—Nothing in this Act shall be construed as prohibiting the sale of health insurance coverage for any additional benefits not covered by this Act, including additional benefits that an employer may provide to employees or their dependents, or to former employees or their dependents.

Other co-sponsors who are running, or considering a run, for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 are Sen. Kirsten Gellibrand (D-NY) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
You will have the health plan they want you to have...
